Pokémon Shiny Diamond and Shimmering Pearl: how to walk with your Pokémon

We tell you all the steps you must take to definitively unlock the functionality that will allow any of our creatures to visually accompany us on the map.

One of the recent additions to Pokémon licenses is the possibility of choosing one of our favorite creatures to visually accompany us around the map, something that we now also have in mind in Pokémon Shiny Diamond and Shimmering Pearl, but not exactly early in the game.

And there is nothing more pleasant than our favorite Pokémon can visually accompany us throughout our adventurous journey, and now we can do it thanks to the unlocking of a very interesting function.

However, unlike the original titles, now we can make any creature can follow us on the map, and practically permanently, and we will give you exactly all the steps below.

It should be noted that this function of walking with our favorite Pokémon is not unlocked from the beginning, and first you must progress in the story until we reach Heart City.

We will access Heart City by traveling along Route 208, after previously defeating the second gym leader in Ancient City.

Once we have reached Ciudad Corazón, we must visit the Friendship Square that is located to the north of the city. We enter it, we investigate, until we see a secondary character behind a desk where he will give us to choose a series of creatures with which we can walk throughout the park.

But of course, what interests us is that they are creatures that can also accompany us outside the park and in the rest of the game, and it is also possible. And it is that once you have walked inside the park with one of the creatures that they give you to choose from, you must go the way you have come and you will already have the option called walking together unlocked.

Do not forget talk to the minor character in the park again to finally unlock it, or you will have to go back.

Once we have unlocked this function, you must press X to go to the menu, then go to the Pokémon option, select the creature you want to walk with, press A on it and you have the option to “walk together”.

As you can see, we have to advance a little in the adventure to unlock a feature that you will surely end up using a lot in the rest of the game.
